Our Review: "What’s next? That’s a question we get to ask every year of brothers Rigoberto and Luis Herrera who own Café Granja La Esperanza a renowned Colombian export company consisting of four distinct farms: Cerro Azul, Las Margaritas, La Esperanza, Potosi, and Hawaii. Following in the footsteps of their father, who first brought Bourbon to the farms in 1945, Rigoberto and Luis have assembled an amazing collection of varieties for cultivation in the department of Valle de Cauca. Meticulous management of the various micro-climates throughout the four farms has provided optimum adaptability and exceptional cherry maturation for each of these varieties. The brothers have also embraced innovation for their wet and dry mill operation to reduce water and fossil fuel consumption. And we have come to expect any combination of processing strategies to charm our taste buds. This washed Colombian/Caturra lot from Finca La Esperanza is proof that sticking to the fundamentals makes yummy coffee. After harvesting, cherries are hand sorted and floated to remove less dense and damaged beans, then depulped, fermented for 24 hours, washed and mechanically dried with low heat for 48 hours." - Royal Coffee
The Herrera brothers have developed a reputation for experimenting with their coffee and this particular lot proves that you can't experiment properly if you haven't first mastered the basics. Coffee enthusiasts can sometimes get bogged down in all the new exciting coffees available and sometimes it's nice to just reach for a dependable, easy going cup. I like to compare it to my passion for great beer: I love trying the newest, wildest IPA, saison or porter but sometimes I just want a nice, easy drinking lager. Relaxing, refreshing and you don't have to think about it too much. Well this is that coffee. No matter how you roast it, brew it or blend it, you're gonna be satisfied with the results! A gently crisp front end leads to a full body and creamy cup with a pleasant, lingering nutty finish. Warm, sweet notes of caramel and milk chocolate abound with just a touch of ripe red grape.
